Proof of a stronger version of the AJ Conjecture for torus knots

Anh T Tran

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 13 (2013) 609–624
Abstract

For a knot K in S3, the sl2–colored Jones function JK(n) is a sequence of Laurent polynomials in the variable t that is known to satisfy non-trivial linear recurrence relations. The operator corresponding to the minimal linear recurrence relation is called the recurrence polynomial of K. The AJ Conjecture (see Garoufalidis [Proceedings of the Casson Fest (2004) 291–309]) states that when reducing t = 1, the recurrence polynomial is essentially equal to the A–polynomial of K. In this paper we consider a stronger version of the AJ Conjecture, proposed by Sikora [arxiv:0807.0943], and confirm it for all torus knots.
